We're planning a weekend urban escapade in Atlanta. We know of the big names -- Bacchanalia, etc. -- but are searching for places offering memorable food that may be less well-known. Neighborhood restaurants, for instance. We're staying in the Buckhead area, but are able (and willing) to travel by car to venture beyond that glitzy scene. The closer the better, of course.
Asian suggestions (Thai, Indian, Malaysian) would be welcome. As would continental fare on the small scale, rather than the corporate industrial order of, say, Veni Vidi Vici.
Thanks for your help.
